How to move a huge tire properly

 Dan has first-hand experience moving large machinery tires. Sometimes when we repair machines, removing the tires is a requirement to gain access. These big tires are 30.5 x 32 which means they are 30.5 inches wide and the rim is 32 inches in diameter. They are around six feet tall and weigh about 1,250 -1,500 pounds per tire with the rim intact. So, they are BIG! Moving them properly is a must. You can easily get crushed if you do not know what you are doing. Safety is the number one priority.

Be safe and God bless!

    Do you get dockage for vomotoxin? We have been growing wheat here in Wisconsin and this is the first year we have experienced this problem.

    Hi Carol,

    Yes you will get dockage for vomitoxin if it is above the standard spec levels. Levels have been very high in some areas this year. Anything going to human consumption generally needs to be <1 ppm, so with high incidence the dockage can go up (as they have little grain to blend it out in). NDSU has a good overview of it – suggest you read:
